XINEMA is an ongoing series that showcases emerging and established experimental filmmakers within and around “Vancouver”, BC. They aim to strengthen and preserve the experimental film scene by creating a space for open conversation, skill-sharing, and community. Programs will usually occur every third Sunday of the month.
Program 4: The Framing of Perception
The Framing of Perception studies moving images’ ability to influence and construct our senses. Through a series of eight short films, perception becomes a filmic language, spoken through an illusive spectacle of grain and pixels. This program explores the registration of light, sound,
and motion; observing our interpretation of existence and the factors that contribute to it.
